Let's get this over to Brakes, Suspension & Chassis.

You'll find that for sway bars anything for '00-'11 will fit.

It has a rear sway bar. I've been seeing threads about some of our cars not having a rear sway? Why is that? Something in place of it?

Nothing in place of it, a smaller front with no rear is a more basic setup.

Yields a smoother ride & less "sporty" handling, car is more inclined to just go straight (understeer). Soft smooth ride with plenty of understeer gives classic big car feel, "safe & secure" to many.

Basic also costs less [:)], which is what i think the main reason was. I want to say it was mostly S models that didnt come with them. Cars without, didnt even come with mounting bracket for the sway bar which sucked.


As for sway bars, the problem is hardly any of the websites/manufacturers list any bars for '08-11 even thouhg its the same setup as 00-07.

Anything listed as fitting a pre '12 focus will work for front and rear sway bars, so 00-11 will work. Focus Suspension / Chassis > Sway Bars. Same for tirerack.com just type in an earlier than '08 focus and you will get some choices
